    1.I would think about Arnica, but when I google images Arnica always has more petals

    2.Pedicularis racemosa?

    3.These flowers from aster family, my suggestions are Erigeron peregrinus, Aster foliaceus, Symphyotrichum foliaceum or Aster foliaceus or Aster conspicuus

    5. First is Valeriana sitchensis, I asked about it already, the second one looks very similar but 6 petals on most flowers

    The first is indeed Arnica, perhaps A. latifolia or A. gracilis.

    #4 looks like Eremogone (Arenaria) capillaris.

    I agree with Pedicularis racemosa for #2.

    The 6 corolla lobes on the latter valerian is likely a flower-form mutation.
